Cybersecurity: Morocco ranked 43ᵉ in the world


Morocco’s cybersecurity efforts are recognized by international organizations. This year, the kingdom is ranked 43ᵉ worldwide in the fight against the phenomenon out of 194 countries, thus making a jump of 7 places compared to the ranking of 2019.

This performance is an expression of the Moroccan authorities’ willingness to make cyber threats a major concern, the United Nations’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU) said in its global cybersecurity index.

The index aims to identify gaps, serve as a roadmap to guide national strategies, inform legal frameworks, build capacity, highlight good practices, strengthen international standards and foster a culture of cybersecurity.

During this year, for example, the General Directorate for the Security of Information Systems (DGSSI) had to intervene no less than 400 times in the face of incidents of various magnitudes. According to officials, these interventions are primarily aimed at minimizing risk and defending critical or sensitive infrastructure against foreign and local threats. The DGSSI issued no less than 410 information bulletins.
